Ok bought this on Amazon from a place called Pet supply of Chicago. I have feed it to Opo 3 times. Everytime I do it I have a uncomfortable feeling. So I have decided to stop.
What do you all think?
Also cannot find the company online. 20190415_093905.jpg 20190415_094118.jpg

Nothing to be uncomfortable about. That's a good product. I use it occasionally for my babies. I soak it until it's soft enough to fall apart, then I mix it in with their greens.

Thanks Yvonne, I was just worried if it was mazuri. I couldn't even find the supply store when I googled it.

5M21 is the original, the good stuff :D

I'm sure Opo will love it
He is not loving it yet but I add little by little to his food. I understand that I should feed just a couple of times a week. How many pellets with Opo at 7 lbs? Any guesses?

Isn't there a lot of cereals in that stuff, which tortoises wouldn't normally be able to access, or eat, in the wild?

My sulcata loves his Mazuri tablets. Just soak them really good

The ingredients list impresses no one. The results from feeding it impress every one who tries it. Its good stuff. I was pretty anti commercial prepared diets for a long time. Why feed bought-in-a-bag crap when you can feed "real" food instead, right? I was wrong. I was ignorant. Now I know better. I use it as an occasional supplement and love it now.

It is the 5m21 do you know if that is the original or the LS?
One more voice chiming in. You've got the right stuff, and you are feeding it the same way I do. Soaked, once or twice a week.

I used to always mix it with greens, but now I usually offer it by itself, or sometimes on a bed of grass hay and garnished with flowers. I think either way works.

Thanks Tom, I am mixing it with zucchini shredded up or acorn squash. Not a lot of a serving. Hopefully I will get to the point of just serving it in a pile.
